Bernie Sanders has purchased his third house – a move that has drawn mass criticism and trolling from social media users.

Vanity Fair confirms the purchase, reporting that Sanders purchased a four-bedroom home on the shore of Lake Champlain for $600,000 – more than three times the median American home price.

The proceeds reportedly came from the sale of a home his wife inherited.

Sanders now owns three properties – one in Burlington, Vermont and another in Capitol Hill, D.C.

Sanders’ new lakeside home.

He still is one of the poorest members of Congress but don’t let that fool you; Sanders’ salary alone (never mind his wife’s income) still places him in the top 4% of American earners. 

As Vanity Fair puts it, that’s “enough to purchase a nice lakefront retirement property with plenty leftover to buy “Feel the Bun” sandwiches from the local Hero’s Welcome General Store.

Unsurprisingly, news of Sanders’ latest high-ticket purchase is not sitting well with many Twitter users who have called him out for hypocrisy.

        Gentlemen, please! Let us stop wishing death upon others, grow a pair, and start bringing to life our desired homicides. Only then may we finally have true peace, by killing all the pussies that won’t buy a gun and put their money where their mouth is.

          The thing about pussies is that unlike dicks, they create themselves. You might call them self-made…

          So if you’re expecting true peace after you kill your enemies, just remember; there will always be things people will hate you for. Just ask Ervil LeBaron…

            Well, as you can imagine, my want to go out and start murdering random people that may be associated with ideologies I disagree with is at an all time low, being that makes me a target for both law enforcement as well my enemies. Wouldn’t it be so much more effective to allow others to do so in my stead? Granting them the emotional outlet they desire, while assisting me by accomplishing my own goals. It seems like a win/win scenario. Not unlike the situation in which our friend Bernie finds himself. Why be rich beyond compare and become a target for hypocrisy when he can simply use a mass of individuals with very low expectations out of life to assist him in the redistribution of other people’s wealth, while at the same time solidifying his own financial health by simple devaluation of everyone else’s.

    Dude can afford a lot of houses when he only pays 13% on his taxes.

    And it’s always infuriating watching this piece of trash buying house after house while he whines about the rich.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    Pays less of his income than the rich people he criticizes.
    Owns 3 houses
    Complains about the poor and homeless. Wants to import refugees.
    Won’t offer house any of them.
    Welcome to modern day socialists. Wanting to spend everyone elses money and take none of the responsibility.

      Is that you, Dale? Get the hell off my wifi or I’m gonna kick your ass!

      how come i make much less than Bernie & pay much higher tax? 🙁

    • Xander Carey

      The modern day socialism is traditional democrat thinking

    • CC1980

      Sanders is all for redistributing the wealth of the rich into his own pocket, he doesn’t give a rats ass about anyone or anything else.

    “Socialism for the masses, dear fellow – but certainly not for me!” has been the motto of the parlour pink and the limousine liberal for decades. Here we see it in practice once again.

    I think you’ll find that a lot of these people that want to limit what others can have, have more than they need.

  • LanceLHall

    Socialist leadership is always except from the tenets of socialism.

  • J.Rock

    He deserves it!

  • Grabitz

    They all got rich in government so why bother bitching about one when they all need to be fired on both sides. It’s most of you normal everyday Americans that’s getting the short end of the stick. Our government doesn’t work for us anymore they work for the new world order and only dictate to us like a communist country and every year it gets worse with more rules that cost all of us one way or another.

    This happened at the end of July/beginning of August of last year. This is an old story.

      wait the thing he said 3 weeks ago happened 9 months ago?

      are you a time traveler? what loto numbers should i pick.

      • NASCARDaddy

        There is nothing in the article quoting anything Bernie said and the dateline from the Vanity Fair article that is the LISTED source for this one is August 8th, 2016. Do try to keep up.

    • midnightrider35000

      Yes, this happened last year. I read about it a few weeks after the primary. I always thought that he got payed by clinton to bow out of the race and support her and he needed a quick way to launder the hillary money and probably some campaign funds that were left over. Hell, the way these guys operate, I wouldn’t doubt if they killed his wife’s mother to make it legit.

  • disqus_7s7D9HwDjo

    Looks a bit like Camp Crystal Lake…is Jason their new neighbor?

  • Walter Ludolf

    You alt.right people don’t even understand the difference between being a Social Democrat and a Socialist or Communist.

    He never said personal wealth is wrong, it’s about exploiting everybody else and him buying a house with money they got from selling another property his wife inherited doesn’t disqualify anything he stands for.
    Which you would acknowledge if you weren’t ignorant blowhards following that disgusting piece of crap Yiannopoulos.
    A guy despised by any Conservative with a shred of decency in his body.

    • Sgt Zim

      You deluded lefties seem to think that there’s some sort of difference between social democrats, socialists, and communists. It’s only the difference between murder and suicide.

      You have to make so many willful evasions to believe that there’s a difference, I’m not sure how you survive each day.

      • KojiSky

        Its easy: we’re not the deluded ones. We’re the ones who are doing better then you are. You’re the ones who keep voting for and supporting the very same evil people who keep screwing you over. That’s why y’all are so grumpy and bitter all the time. The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again and expecting things to change. Yet, y’all keep voting for the same jerks. Don’t cry when you lose your insurance coverage, get less social security and have to pay more for everything else because you asked for it.

  • OneEye

    isnt milos arew begging for omney aka csocialist way!

  • Rick El

    He’s a jolly ole’ soul ! I just don’t agree with his politics ! As far as, him purchasing another house, it depends on how much time he spends there ! If he’s there a lot, it makes sense to have a house there, than to have to pay rent or stay in a motel. That could be expensive over time ! And since he technically he got the money from his wife’s inheritance, than it makes sense to purchase a home ! This way they will have more to leave their children, when they pass over ! IN OTHER WORDS, IT DOESN’T BOTHER ME WHAT HE SPENDS HIS MONEY ON ! WHAT BOTHERS ME IS THE CRAP THAT HE PREACHES, BECAUSE THAT CAN WARP OTHER PEOPLE’S MINDS, THAT ARE GULLIBLE ENOUGH, INTO THINKING LIKE HIM !!!!

    • Chrissy Branch

      A jolly old sole? Funny he appears like a miserable old fart!

    • CC1980

      The “wife’s inheritance” seems to be the perpetual gift that just keeps on giving, he bought a $650,000 lakeside home in Vermont soon after dropping out of the race with the same inheritance money, inheritance money is just the excuse he’s using for as to where the bribe and leftover campaign contribution money supposedly came from.

  • Rick El

    Milo, I’m glad you have a Facebook column !! I hate to see a good voice silenced, and you have shown how strong a person you are, by putting things behind you and moving on ! Thanks !

  • franklygross

    thats not the fair share of houses is it? or does that get filed under “only for me but not for thee” world of socialist leadership?

  • cfishy

    All of Bernie Sander’s 1% quote is by net worth, not income. Milo the pedo.

  • runnerrunner

    This is a story about a man named Seth Rich
    He was his momma only son and he will be missed
    He was a bright young man always striving for right
    Until he was shot down in the middle of the night
    He was a Bernie man and ready for the fight,
    However He worked for the DNC and discovered they don’t fight right
    Some say he leaked the e-mails Assange said as much
    He knew the DNC was corrupt he felt he had to say such
    The leaking e-mails stopped the day his blood filled the street
    While Bernie got his new house to grovel at Hillary feet
    I’d like to ask Shawn Lucas if this story makes him blue
    But he was a Sanders supporter in the DNC that was murdered too

  • MichaelCrackMonkey

    A Socialist is someone who complains about others having more than him so he takes actions to make sure he has more than others. I’ve worked hard my whole life, pulled myself out of real poverty not the ObamaPhone, Free Internet and Cable TV kind of poverty where the poor own two cars, computers, eat Steak and Seafood, and go on at least one vacation every year. No I came from a family of 4 living on $375 a month in Southern California, food stamps or go hungry, no new clothes, and wear your shoes until they are literally falling off your feet and you can no longer sew them back together kind of poverty to become successful. I also own 3 houses but two are rented and the most expensive is 1/2 the price of Bernie’s latest purchase. We save our money for times when there’s no work/no income and we never ask for handouts nor do we live beyond our means. We invest what we have “earned” while still helping our children and grandchildren live better lives than we had at their ages and we give more to charity than Bernie & Obama combined. No I’m not a socialist I’m a capitalist so I don’t expect the government to take care of me but apparently Bernie is a Socialist who has Capitalism for dessert.

    • Jodi Vowell

      ‘Bernie is a Socialist who has Capitalism for dessert.’

      Well said.

  • Ron Hussey

    Yup, Bernie the lying bum took a nice fat bribe to drop out of the race from the DNC and Hillary’s campaign. Within a week from dropping out of the race, bend over Bernie the degenerate lifetime bum, was buying a house in the Hamptons.

  • Michelle

    I don’t understand? Based on his political views and compassion for all people he should be living in Dearborn MI.

  • Electra Smith

    Maybe Bernie ‘took a dive’ and kept his mouth shut after the Hillary Clinton DNC thing because they paid him off. He’s been the guy, first and foremost, NOT wanting to pursue the DNC destruction of his
    campaign or HIllary’s dirty tricks. Oddly unamerican to let somebody get off with breaking the law, by saying, ‘it’s water under the bridge’.. or it will hurt the party. Hmmmm… smoke? Fire? I know they
    report it was from the sale of his wife’s inherited house. What else could he have done iwth the money?
    I can’t blame Bernie for wanting that house on the shores of Lake Whatever… it looks like the kind of place i’d like to spend my summers in and I guess, the problem is, no matter how good a socialist is at talking the talk, they get used to the money and the lifestyle. Even Stalin had a nice house. or maybe I should say, ‘SPECIFICALLY’ Staln had a nice house… while many others didn’t. It goes with the territory, the perks of the job? Somehow, I don’t think Che Guevara would have agreed.

    Can we say the average man’s hypocrite?

  • CC1980

    Can afford millions of dollars worth of homes while on a gov salary (must be the clinton pay off) but refuses to buy a bottle of Head and Shoulders Shampoo!

  • Philip Heebsh

    Yeah, all rich people are supposed to despise poor people! It’s completely infeasible that someone could become wealthy by honest means in the American capitalist system and also identify flaws in the system he would fix even if they affected people like himself. He should just stick to looking down on people and being an all around sack of shit like the president. That’s what rich people are expected to do, right?

  • Wal Ford

    Remember that for the Left, the only legit means of garnering economic success
    is via politics, the media or the entertainment industry.

    If you got rich while creating jobs, by definition you are a parasite.
